bay or flats boats

Flat fishing boats are specialized and most popular in coastal areas where snook, redfish, tarpon, sea trout, permit and bonefish live. They can float and run in water less than two feet deep and are ideal for fishing with two to three people on board. A flats boat reserves little room for creature comforts, giving large casting decks on the bow and stern, plus tackle storage, rod holders and livewells instead of upholstered seating and carpet.
